  • What are your most “interesting “ watches?

    Here are two of mine. I like them. I like wearing watches people have never seen before.

    That's a lovely pair you have there! (Not the first time I have used that line )

    When you say 'interesting,' it depends what you mean by that. There's interesting visually and then there's interesting historically, for example. Ultimately, it's a subjective measure down to each person's interpretation and interests.

    That said, from my collection, I'd say that my Klynt is interesting aesthetically; the Horage is technically interesting; the Seiko Alpinist is for its heritage / history; and the Dubey for its rarity,, unusual design and the beauty of the movement.

    Of course, the Submariner could also be included if thinking about heritage, but I guess they're a bit passé to be included.

      Very nice collection. As Chris mentions it is different things to different people. In some I enjoy the movement through a display case back with some or the way the light catches a dial through others. I find my moonphase particularly interesting as it is less commonplace

        My most interesting complication is the JLC Perpetual Calendar.

        The one that has an interesting history for me is my PP 5196 - the direct descendent of the original Calatrava Ref. 96.
        Have a look at this post on old TURF which shows the evolution of this classic model - http://www.newturfers.com/bin/mwf/to...w.pl?tid=40859

            Thanks, Broxi - yes, I still have the PP. I bought it when my elder son was born, as I had clearly fallen for the "You never actually own a PP...." adverting blurb!
            I chose it as was, for me, the epitome of the dress watch.

            And the JLC has, to my mind, one of the most well-balanced dials for this complication on any watch.

              Continuing on the JLC train, my Master Compressor Memovox gets more comments (which I assume means it's more interesting) than anything else I own, probably because
              of all the mysterious protrusions and the slightly asymmetrical dial.

                        Didn't see one of those when I was in Moscow...........Lots of golden arches from the real MaccyDs though. And cheaper than the London branches.
